If you have been following Queen of Reviews very long at all you have surely seen the brand AcuRite mentioned several times. AcuRite is owned by the Chaney Instrument Co., a leading manufacturer of precision time, temperature and weather products since 1943.AcuRite is the #1 top selling brand in weather products. From digital thermometers to wireless sensors, AcuRite products are widely recognized for accuracy, quality and ease of use. They offer environmental information products for every niche; whether you are a gardener, aviator, sportsman or a homeowner looking for localized data, AcuRite has you covered with their top quality rain gauges, barometers, hygrometers, thermometers, indoor and outdoor monitors, pool thermometers, wind sensors, wireless weather instruments, weather stations and weather forecasters. One of our favorite products from AcuRite is the AcuRite Weather Environment System with PRO+ 5-in-1 Sensor & Display with PC Connect that I reviewed here a few months back. We love that it is personalized weather for our exact location. The system is able to predict rain based off of its various sensors and an accurate forecast for our exact location, it is pretty sweet and AcuRite is a company known for innovation so they are constantly inventing and evolving products to enhance the customer experience.
We just received a couple of new sensors to add on to our current system. The sensor above on the left is a Room Monitor which has a LED displaying for temp and humidity and it reports back to the same interface as the weather station, plus it has a water sensor. This is great for that basement near the sump pump that you really need to know if it stops working. Maybe place it by your washer and dryer to detect leaks or under your sink. The sensor can also detect the absence of water so place it in your pool or hot tub and know when it has a leak or is below a specified level. The second sensor on the right is a ground temp sensor. For those of you that love to garden you know how important soil temperature is as you plant your Fall garden and also in the Spring when you want to make sure the ground has warmed up.
AcuRite has always offered a web interface for their weather stations, but they just recently introduced the revamped myAcurite site that you see above. As you can see the first row has the sensor data from the 5-in-1 weather station, temp, humidity, rainfall, wind speed, etc. As you look a little further down you can see the readings for the indoor temp and humidity sensor and then next is the Ground temp sensor that is out in the back yard. The bottom row features our customized 5 day forecast as well.
As part of the myAcuRite rollout they also introduced a smartphone app that lets me see the same info as I see on the website.
Since all of this equipment is connected using the internet bridge myAcuRite even lets me add my weather station data to wunderground. As you can see in the screenshot above my weather station is assigned a station ID and anyone that has access to the internet can see the weather conditions in my backyard, pretty sweet isn’t it?
